The TFW Medical Advisory Council was created in April 2015 with the primary purpose of providing insight, strategic advice, and expertise as requested by TFW leaders to support the mission and vision of the coalition. MAC also serves as a representative link between TFW and the Sedgwick County medical community. The council is comprised of seven local healthcare providers that encompass a variety of specialties and areas of expertise.

MAC Activities: Activities of the MAC include the following, and may be further defined as need arises:

  • Review TFW materials and other communications for medical accuracy.
